Another fantastic week of Real Tennis with a full draw of 32 players.
Some really close group matches giving us the last 16 to be played Sunday Morning.
Good show from the students this year with 3 making the quarter finals. Some great tennis from our usual suspects with Nick Thompson beating Tony Harrison in an epic match. Nick being 5-1 up and Tony rallying after the 2 minute silence for Remembrance Sunday to get pipped at the post by one of Nick’s Picque serves which kept flush to the back wall.
So to the final. Will Robertson our new President of the Newcastle University Real Tennis Association being unbeaten through the group stages playing against Travers Blair. They had met in the group stages but put on a fab show for the score to be 8/6 to Will.
Thank you to our sponsor The Biscuit Factory this year who sponsored the whole event and donated 2 fantastic prizes for the winner and runner up.
